Build It Live is a construction software management program designed for contractors by a contractor. Build It Live founder Chris Ross is an electric contractor who found himself overwhelmed with paper work and emails that he wasn’t even sure were relevant to his projects. He knew that there was construction project management software available on the market, but its cost made it too expensive for most general contractors and builders.
In 2008 he formed Construction Connect. In 2010 Marcus Linden, a successful software executive and market strategist, was recruited to lead Construction Connect. Marcus recognized the potential of a construction project management (SaaS) software that was easy to use and more importantly, affordable. This made it ideal for smaller construction companies, construction project managers, engineers, and architects. They’ve developed two products, Build It Live and Mobile PlanRoom.
